Liverpool Play Another Derby Away from Home at TottenhamPublished October 22, 2017 by Florin P
Tottenham’s solid back line welcomes Liverpool’s offensive road team (4:00 p.m UK Time).
Tottenham has won five consecutive games in all competitions and hopes to extend the winning streak when Liverpool come visiting. Both at home and on the road the team has played very well, but their defensive performance at White Hart Lane is downright impressive. The visitors haven’t won a game in the last month and only prevailed once in the last eight fixtures.
Solid Performance for Liverpool in Derbies
Liverpool sits in the eighth place and is not within striking distance of the leading. That’s particularly surprising and even frustrating for the fans given their performance in the most difficult matches played this season. Liverpool hasn’t lost any of the derbies and picked up most of the points, but were unable to capitalize on these positive results.
Many precious points were dropped at home against weaker opponents after they conceded late goals. At home Liverpool frequently comes from behind when opponents score the opening goal, but they are less successful on the road. Against Tottenham, they can’t afford to slip early in the match because the hosts have conceded just three goals at home the entire season.
6 Clean Sheets in Eight Games
The two teams from Manchester are still leading the pack, but Tottenham found a way to stay within striking distance. That’s because of their stellar defensive and the ability to deny even offensive teams the chance to score. They conceded goals just twice in the last eight rounds and will give Liverpool a run for their money when they come to London.
888 Sport and Unibet Sportsbook offer the same odds of 11/10 on the home side to win, which represent spectacular value given their recent form. This match is likely to be a close affair and that is precisely why the quality of Tottenham’s defenses plays such an important role.
